As a very young chid I belived when on a train that there was a very strong man outside at the back of it pushing it along very fast with all his might.

I used to think that if you misbehaved on a train, the driver would open the doors, tilt the train sideways and make you fall down the gap.

I used to think all train lines in London were connected to ones all over England, so if you went from Baker Street to Yorkshire, for instance, then you'd be on the same train the whole time, before realising that they all terminated at different stations in
London!

I used to think that when you were waiting for a train, the driver would announce that the train was coming on a megaphone when approaching the station, and you would hear their voice from all the way down the track.

When I was a child I compared cars with us and now that I am older I see that if there is some truth to that, what I liked the most was that I imagined a face for each model of car that I saw

When I was a kid I asked my mom what the city bus was, and she told me, "It's stops and picks you up and takes you downtown." She didn't mention the fact that it was a voluntary thing, that you had to WANT to get on the bus and to pay a fare, so I just got the idea in my head that if I happened to be walking down the street and the bus came up alongside me it would just stop and abduct me, so for a long time I was very wary of the bus.

I thought that "jet black" referred to the kind of jet you fly in, which I found odd as I had never seen a black jet plane.
